The Mayor of Trafford, Councillor Mrs Patricia Young and Leader of Trafford Council Councillor, Matthew Colledge joined Trafford College principal, Sir Bill Moorcroft and Creative Arts and Media students for an exclusive showing of a photography exhibition in Altrincham Town Centre this week.

The College’s Creative Arts and Media department has recently been working in association with Altrincham Forward on a photography project called ‘Behind the Scenes’. The project enabled students to access locations in the town that would usually be off-limits and the results enable the viewer to look at familiar locations in the town from a new perspective.

Students Showcase their work

The project also helped enhance the essential skills required of a photographer in the freelance market such as communication, self-motivation, inter-personal skills, team work, organisation, initiative and working under pressure to deadlines. Getting the chance to exhibit their work not only showcased the young students’ talent, but also gave them the opportunity to discuss their experiences of working on the project with their audience.

Councillor Mrs Patricia Young commented, ‘It’s a real pleasure to open this ‘pop up’ gallery today in Altrincham town centre. It’s projects like this that give the students a chance to not only practice their technical understanding and subject knowledge but also the transferable skills needed by an individual to make them ‘employable.

‘I am sure the students have gained valuable experience and I’d like to thank them for their professional attitude and work ethic. I know their tutors are proud of the way they have handled the assignment.’
